This extremely large 18th century Dutch glass goblet, which was made for the German market, has incredibly detailed engraving of a galleon ship and buildings, with the saying Het Well Vaaren Van Ons Vaaderland, which translates as Success to Our Homeland. The large bell bowl sits atop a 4 knopped stem which has, in sequence from the top, a flattened knop, an inverted baluster knop, an annular knop, and a half knop. A trapped tear extends the entire length of the stem. The domed foot has a rough snapped pontil. The metal is soda, but of high quality and brightness, with very few bubbles. As mentioned, the glass is very large, standing 8 1/2 inches tall, a 3 1/4 inch bowl diameter, and a 3 1/2 inch foot diameter. A spectacular piece.
